Happy 2013! I hope you all had a great time ringing in the New Year. We had a fantastic night celebrating with friends, and I'm so looking forward to a new year with lots of exciting adventures ahead. Today I'm sharing a new layout that just went up in the Garden over at Two Peas In A Bucket this morning.
This layout was a lot of fun to create. I based it on a sketch from my good friend Becky Fleck (www.pagemaps.com) and used lots of fun new Simple Stories SN@P goodies! I created several “clothes lines” from which I hung some of my favorite photos from this past year using baker's twine and small wooden clothes pins. The bright colors of the SN@P goodies were a perfect addition to highlight several of the colors in my photos.
I also used several different stamp sets from Ali Edwards to add months and words to my labels. I just adore Ali's stamps and the mix between typewritten fonts and her handwriting added lots of fun details to my vignettes. Plus I stamps some in color and some in black to add an extra little twist as well.
I organize my scrapbook albums by year so this type of layout is the perfect way to "finish off" an album with a little review of some of my favorite photos and moments from the past twelve months.
There are lots of fun announcements over at Two Peas this morning including a new batch of Garden Girls and several new video series. I will be contributing to a new series called "Seeing Double" in which I will be creating a card AND layout focusing on the same design, product, or technique. It's the perfect video series for a card making scrapbooker (or is that scrapbooking card maker) like myself. I hope you'll join me in this new adventure! Thanks for stopping by!
